Avelluto's Italian Delight: "Inexpensive Italian - Take Out or Eat In" Italian Tip by yooperprof

Italian, Kansas City: 15 reviews and 11 photos

  a modest storefront
by yooperprof

It's actually on the Kansas side of State Line, in the suburb of Mission, but certainly "Italian Delight" lives up to its name. In fact, it has some of the best inexpensive Italian food I've ever had - and darn good pizza, too. It has the feel - and the authenticity - of a neighborhood joint in Queens. My family - third generation Italian American - has been coming here for 20 years now.

Favorite Dish: Pastas, salads, pizzas, calzones - all fresh, wholesome, and tasty. I especially recommend the lasagna - the Avelluto family makes an excellent red sauce!
